My environmental issue is overpopulation. The world’s current population is 7 billion as of October 2011. The world is being populated with excessively large numbers which has many negative effects on it and humans. China has 21% of the world’s population. Poor living conditions are lead by overpopulated regions such China. China has a “one child per family” policy which states the soon to be parents much obtain a birth certificate before the birth of their child. Special benefits are offered to the parents if agreed to only have one child, if they have more than one child they are punished by being taxed up to 50% of their income and loss of employment and other benefits. Also unplanned pregnancies would have to be terminated. To reduce the negative effects and problems of overpopulation, I’ve came up with a few ideas to help resolve. They are to end all policies that reward parents based on the number of children they have, integrate lessons on population, environment and development into school curricula at multiple levels and to offer age appropriate for all students.
